When I download certificates for myself or others, they are immediately password locked without me knowing the password. I understand this may be intended functionality to prevent tampering/falsifying the certificates. However, this has caused significant inconvenience for my team.
We downloaded 30 certificates yesterday for a program graduation. Because the certificates are locked, they could not be combined into one document for printing. Adobe gave us errors that we did not have permissions to combine the document without the passwords since combining documents is considered a form of editing.
We aren't trying to edit the text on the certificates, just combine them to print all at once. We also can't export as any other document type or print to PDF without errors as a work around. We had to spend extra time printing each certificate individually and checking the print settings on 30 separate documents yesterday to accomplish our goals rather than only printing once.
Does anyone have any suggestions or has anyone figured out a way around this?? It’s not something we do every day, but it’s very inconvenient, especially after already downloading the certificates one by one.
